I'm quite impressed with the strategy. I think his time line is too ambitious for the first person on Mars (2025!) and the milestones for after that point seem far far too ambitious; but I'm surprised to say that I think he could well have a rocket do a there and back again mission by 2019/2021 for far far less than I'd expected (tens to hundereds of millions, not billions).

His goal is a round trip cost of 500,000$ per passenger to Mars (with a load of 100 passengers), which he lays out a very solid plan to get there in a very short time frame.
